Halloween Meringue Ghosts

My son Desmond said he wants to move to USA next time as Malaysia here did not celebrate Happy Halloween (he saw a lot of cartoon show on Halloween). I'm speechless !! In order for him to feel the celebration of Happy Halloween, I made this meringue ghost for him just now, hoping that he is not moving to USA the next time, hahaha...

Halloween Meringue Ghosts


I got this idea on how to make this meringue ghost from Jane's corner, but I did not use her recipe (I use the earlier ice cream cookie recipe which taught by Felvinc) and method (she leave the meringue in the oven and door open for overnight) as humid air here will cause the meringue absorbed the moisture and turned sticky very quickly. Anyway, Thanks to Jane for sharing this great idea.

Halloween Meringue Ghosts
(source : originated by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover)

2 large eggs white (about 50-60g)
40g icing sugar
1/4tsp cream of tartar
1/8tsp vanilla essence
2tsp corn flour

Chocolate chips, to deco the eyes

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar on low-medium speed until foamy.
3. Add the sugar, a little at a time, and continue to beat until the meringue holds soft peaks.
4. Add in corn flour and vanilla essence, continue to beat until very stiff peaks.
5. Pipe meringue into small ghost shape and carefully place two chocolate chips into each meringue ghost.
6. Bake at pre-heated oven at 70c for 90mins or until they are dry and crisp to the touch and easily separate from the parchment paper.
7. Immediately transfer the baked meringue into air tight container (to avoid meringues became sticky and gooey).

** Desmond was so happy to enjoy this cripsy and sweet meringue ghosts !!

Very nice Sonia! Love the idea! Too bad this year I am not baking any Halloween stuff for my girls. Your boy is right about going to US to enjoy Halloween, bcos they go all the way, no expense saved. And it is known that kids in States love halloween more then any other holidays (maybe besides xmas), because they get to dress up, go out at night which is pass their bedtime and eat as much candy as they like!! How cool is that? Talking about that, I sure miss my life there, lol! Happy Halloween!

Melodii Cheang said...

i followed the entire recipe, but it turns out to be liquid..and can't stand up to become the lil ghost..

any ideas?

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi said...

Haha! Very adorable of Desmond to say that under the influence of the media!! Well, if he decides to pursue education in the States when he's older, I don't think it's stoppable. It's gonna be adventure of a lifetime. =)

Lovely idea for Halloween. I myself actually am never into Halloween despite my stay in the States. My fave holidays there are Thanksgiving, Christmas and Fourth of July.
